There are some very impressive robots in this show, including one that lifts weights and another that reads sheet music and plays the organ. Much stranger are the oddly-shaped, somewhat organic-looking robots which appear to be in a stage show of some sort. A pair of somewhat phallic blue robots doing a dance of love with their hearts flashing is downright disturbing.
